Disambiguation[edit]

As Mali's dominant political party is named A.D.E.M.A. also (and is often written ADEMA), I'd like to move this article to Adema (band) with a redirect notice at the top of the Malian article. Or perhaps a disambig page would do for both, though my first instinct is to say that a ruling political party is more encyclopedically-notable. Any thoughts? I'll probably do this next weekend some time. --Dvyost 17:22, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

For now I'm adding a small disambig at the top. Best, --Dvyost 17:24, 15 August 2005 (UTC)
As you said yourself, it's called A.D.E.M.A.. And, searching Google it's obvious to see which gets more responses when you search for "Adema" or "ADEMA". And all the articles here are "encyclopedically-notable", I don't see how one is more so than another. Enfestid 23:34, August 15, 2005 (UTC)
My apologies; I phrased that badly and didn't mean to start an argument. Unfortunately this isn't really a case where Google is going to be the most reliable test, as Mali is a French- and Bambara-speaking nation that is largely without internet access; hence Mali-related articles tend to come in at a lower ranking by default because of the paucity of hits. Despite their lower Google ranking, ADEMA does control a country of 11 million people, and has for nearly fifteen years.
My understanding is that ADEMA actually is the most common abbreviation for the first version of this party (as you can see in the English and French articles on the subject). I wrote it with periods for the sake of clarity, but typically ended up confusing the subject more =). Unfortunately I don't think the Wikipedia software will allow an article "ADEMA" and an article "Adema" to coexist. How would you feel about splitting the difference by moving this article to Adema (band) and creating a disambig page linking to both (picking random examples, similar to Nono or Salif Keïta)?
Thanks for responding so fast! Best, --Dvyost 02:03, 16 August 2005 (UTC)

"Planets" Sales[edit]

Please stop editing the page to say Planets sold better than the other two albums. There is no information that confirms that, and given the first week sales of the album and the fact it was only on the Billboard for one week makes it extremely unlikely. As for album sales, just leave it at what we know -- it's not "unknown" since we know it sold that much and more (hence the +). Enfestid 22:58, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Adema - Adema.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Adema - Adema.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:08, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Level[edit]

Despite what many seem to think, Level has NOT announced plans to disband. It's starting to look like that, but stop saying "former Level singer" when he never left Level, and they haven't disbanded. Thanks. Enfestid 14:52, 1 July 2007 (UTC) A post from the vocalist disputes this now.

Rewrite[edit]

Hey guys, rewrote the page. Let me know if anybody has any:

  • Pictures of Adema they'd be willing to open-source (that is, release your copyright on the photo to Wikipedia)
  • A copy of the "Cold and Jaded" CD (I need a WAV-quality rip), so I can put a sample of it in the article
  • Better information on the start/stop dates of the early band.

Thanks! :) Lalala666 01:53, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Edit war on album sales[edit]

Hey folks; I just noticed an edit war going on here with album sales. Everyone involved needs to watch out for the three revert rule. Also, in the process of warring, the footnote on the album sales seems to have lost the reference. Someone who knows what is going on here needs to clean up a bit. The footnote had a reference which was removed in this edit on 15:44, 5 August 2007 by 67.80.47.183 (talk · contribs). The figures were reverted in this edit on 16:47, 5 August 2007 by Enfestid (talk · contribs), but not the footnote.

I have no idea about the subject matter or rights and wrongs involved. I'd just encourage people to talk about it here. Duae Quartunciae (talk · cont) 04:53, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Misunderstanding[edit]

This is wrong:

The band has blamed low sales of Unstable on being dropped.[10]

The quote from the citation ([1]) is

Kris Kohls: "Basically what happened was that we didn’t sell enough records for their tastes and we got dropped."

So what the band is saying is they're blaming low sales for being dropped, like the original edit. This is saying the exact opposite, that they got low sales because they were dropped; actually, they were dropped because they had low sales! You can reword it to make it more clear, since this page is a little too fanboy-ey for me to fight that edit war. Thanks :)

Insomniac's Dream[edit]

Whoever keeps deleting Insomniac's Dream stop. It is apart of Adema's music history. Check their myspace. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teresa44 (talkcontribs) 22:19, 17 July 2009

That's me who's deleting it off the main article page. When a band has a discography page, EPs, singles, etc. are listed on that page. Only the band's studio albums are to be listed on the main article under the discography section. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Musicians/Article_guidelines#Discography_section FallenWings47 (talk) 04:46, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Luke[edit]

Luke joined the band on January 2005. It's even on the wiki page that he did. You can also check here. http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=11550. So whoever keeps posting that he joined the band in 2004 please stop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teresa44 (talkcontribs) 12:28, 14 August 2009

Formation[edit]

Shouldn't someone note that this was a band created by music executives to capitalize on the numetal fad? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.242.1.222 (talkcontribs) 18:18, 17 September 2009

Well considering that is false, why would we note that? Adema formed out of the same molten core that korn formed out of. Sexart. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.115.187.26 (talk) 18:54, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Mark Chavez Second Departure[edit]

Please cite this as I've done some back research and find this information to be bogus. Reverting until valid sources for this information are cited.68.115.187.26 (talk) 12:56, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

David DeRoo[edit]

Hi everyone, please stop re-adding what took place with Dave. You all are adding what happened to him because you can't mind your own business. Dave has a personal life, no one knows the full story of what happened. It's best to keep this info off of wikipedia and respect his privacy. The guy is a good friend of mine, he would never hurt anyone or anything. Please let the band handle this. --64.19.128.74 (talk) 22:23, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

By removing this information, you're not complying with Wikipedia's conflict of interest and neutrality policies. By disruptively continuing to click the undo button, you're also not complying with Wikipedia's three revert rule. The way this information is currently presented is in a very neutral and unbiased manner. Fezmar9 (talk) 04:41, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Sprucing up[edit]

I did a little cleaning with some of the paragraphs. I mainly just cleaned up some minor grammatical errors and rearranged a few things so they read easier. I also cut out a little repetition in the "Planets" section. Ssjgoku75x (talk) 06:46, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Unneeded info[edit]

I took out most of the opening paragraph. It's a bit unneeded and is so summarized that it seems to make reading the rest of the page unnecessary. Here's the original paragraph in case if it must be replaced for whatever reason:

"After their first two albums, Adema and Unstable, Mike Ransom left the band in 2003 followed by Chavez later in 2004 due to conflicts between themselves and other members of the band. Luke Caraccioli replaced Chavez in early 2005 for one album, Planets, but then left a few months later in late 2005. In 2006, Adema announced that vocalist Bobby Reeves and guitarist Ed Farris, both from the band LEVEL, had joined the band. This lineup lasted over 3 years but only released one album, Kill the Headlights. It wasn't until August 13, 2009 that the original line up was reunited with Bobby Reeves and Ed Faris agreeing to leave the band. However Ransom showed extreme minimal participation in the reunion and left once again in late 2010, followed soon by Chavez in early January 2011." Ssjgoku75x (talk) 06:51, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Your reason for removing this is the very definition of what the lead/intro is supposed to be on wikipedia pages... Sergecross73 msg me 16:17, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
